Young peo­ple help as laun­dry vol­un­teers

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

A youth group in Chongqing mu­nic­i­pal­ity has taken over the ba­ton since 2012 from a long­stand­ing “laun­dry vol­un­teer team” which serves lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties by car­ry­ing out house­hold tasks and de­liv­er­ing ba­sic sup­plies. Zhou Jip­ing, 60, a role model in the re­gion, first set up the laun­dry team in 1998. Zhou has re­ceived nu­mer­ous awards in recog­ni­tion of her self­less ser­vice to the com­mu­nity for over three decades. Nowa­days, as Zhou be­gins to en­ter her se­nior years, around 400 young vol­un­teers from var­i­ous sec­tors have joined her, to ex­tend their ser­vice and formed a new or­ga­ni­za­tion.
